Since all of us get a little stuck creatively at times, I thought I’d share with you the types of posts I usually do for this blog(some of them I still haven’t gotten to), as well as ideas what you could write about in any crafts blog.

When I first started blogging, I was a little lost as to what to write about when it came to my online business and not just my personal thoughts on what I did today or the latest news…

DSCF1839DSCF1828 DSCF1827Hey guys,

lately the weather has been sunny and hot, and I also went to Salsa night in one of the local clubs, and so I’ve been inspired to start making fabric flowers again. These are my first new additions! I hope you enjoy them. Those particular ones also double as a brooch, so they can be used in a lot more ways.

To check out more and order your own visit my shop on Etsy.

I am an old fashioned girl from Vermont who cherishes the old ways, the warm layers, the embrace of family and the heirloom quality of handmade.


Besides the creation of handmade items, I have been fascinated by learning about what makes a person successful in fields like arts and crafts, and the creation process behind it. I have in these few years, spend many hours reading about that, and researching it.

Now, I decided to cross on the other side. From this week on I will be posting one interview a week, every Thursday with successful Etsy sellers, other craftsmen, writers, photographers and art people.

I hope you enjoy it! Feel free to comment or contact me if you have any additional questions.
